An exploration of Mexican cuisine presents recipes for main dishes, sauces and desserts, ranging for simple to sophisticated. "The culmination of more than fifty years of living, traveling, and cooking in Mexico, 'The Art of Mexican Cooking' is the ultimate guide to creating authentic Mexican food in your own kitchen, with more than 200 beloved recipes as well as evocative illustrations. The dishes included, favorites from all the regions of Mexico, range from sophisticated to pure and simple, but they all share an intrinsic depth of taste. Aficionados will go to great lengths to duplicate the authentic dishes (and Kennedy tells them exactly how), but here too is a wealth of less complicated recipes for the casual cook in search of the unmistakable flavors of a bold cuisine."--Publisher description.
